Over the past 6 months my family have been dealing with some terrible illnesses & diseases & it just seems like there is no end to it. The constant daily visits to hospitals appear to be the only life I have at the moment & I find there is nothing I can do to make things better. Good health is something taken for granted at times, we all need to cherish everyday while we have it.

  • We had a Run like that, and it dents your resilience for quite a while. Try to be kind to yourself.

    • It runs you ragged, but it is always harder for the patients suffering.


  • Sounds very stressful. I hope you can find time to relax inbetween.


  • Oh my! I hope that this tiring period will end soon. Sending a lot of positive thoughts your way! :-)


  • I completely understand and I am sending you warm wishes and every good thought. Ongoing illness, medical intervention, medical bills and the emotional toll is exhausting and carrying a heavy load wears you down. Please try and and find a tiny amount of time for yourself and let other people help you. Maybe some quiet time with a cuppa, a treat and connecting with the other Mums on this site. Also, reach out to support services in your area if you need help. Hope everything improves for you and your family. x

    • Thank you for your thoughtful wishes.

      • You are very welcome. Sincerely hope everything improves.


  • We all would love to have money but health & happiness are the most important things in life. The rest is superficial

    • Oh My!!! I think you have rather missed the point of the story. I again reiterate my heartfelt sympathies to “ashblonde” MoM and truly hope that things start to improve for you and your family soon as these trying times continue. Daily hospital visits are extremely difficult and confronting for all involved with or touched by illness. Please take care of yourself, and be assured that others (albeit strangers) extend wishes and good thoughts to you and your family.


  • Sounds like you are doing it pretty tough at the moment. I hope things improve soon. Heartfelt warm wishes to you and your family. Good health is something we should truly appreciate.

    • Thank you Mom 165081, it is a hard time at the moment so I’m thankful for people like you who send kind thoughts. I haven’t had much time on Mouths of Mums lately but I know how caring Mums have been in the past so I’ll try and get a bit more ME time back on here.
